Is this a good book idea or should I just scrap it?

I got a main book idea about elf's flying planes to harras and then try and kill some human with special powers, it's going to be a science fiction Stephen King horror style written novel.

But is this a crappy idea?
I also have a secondary idea, a comedy novel about a dodgy landlord and a lazy tenant.
Should I just do this instead?

Elf type thing. Creatures of some sort. Green with the ears ect. More scary then elf basically.

Second idea seems nicer, but then again, this is your novel. Personally don't like fantasy (love horror) so I might be biased.

But doesn't Stephen King do horror that's not believable?

Heyy!! Lol I love these posts. I think the first idea is really imaginative, and the second sounds hilarious. Why not try to plot both of them out and see where they lead you? You might enjoy one plot over the other. Also, they're ideas which call for very different moods. One day you might be super inspired to write one story, the next another. Perhaps you can write both of them at the same time... that's all on you. Do get back to me if you decide to post your story online!! I'd love to read it

Well I was thinking of writing a fictional Stephen King type horror novel about mysterious elf type creatures attacking a guy from planes.
But I was now thinking of just adding landlord funnies inside the novel instead of making two novels. If that makes sense.

And ofcourse I'll send you the book when finished.

Yup, I can totally see that. You can always give the elves a social system which makes some elves ****ter and some cooler. Or the ship they travel in is rented to some lady who likes elf pudding...lmao don't pay me any mind xD My stories always turn out weird af. Good luck with your enterprise!!! It's looking good :cool:
